Frequently asked questions
We are able to supply the correct replacement filters either individually or in packs of 10, together with replacement silicon tubing. For more details please contact us.
The tubing in the peristaltic pump housing flattens with wear over time, reducing the flow, and it eventually splits. It is recommended that this tube is replaced as soon as a reduced flow is observed. Replacement tubes are available from Optimec. For more details please contact us.
The original halogen lamp fitment (soon to become unavailable) has now been superseded by a specially designed LED light engine which is now fitted as standard to all new Optimec instruments. The LED provides a whiter light, sharper images, cooler operating temperature, and lower running costs. The LED has been designed so it can be retrofitted by the customer to the majority of older instruments. Contact us.

Saline Filtration (in built)
The Optimec model JCF/F is almost identical to the JCF, both physically and in function. The instruments differ in one respect only. The JCF/F has a peristaltic pump mounted on the left hand side of the cabinet, which feeds saline back to the cell via a renewable cartridge filter. The pump system will remove particles from the saline to give a clear image of the contact lens in the wet cell. The pump can be switched off so that in the event of any pumping system failure the instrument can still be used for contact lens analysis.
